Looks like the Chine end of Shanklin, it looks like it could be where the Chine Inn is situated on the long coastal walk down to the beach where the Fishermenís Cottage pub is located.
My family had many a lovely holiday there when I was young.

Good evening,

Looks like the old fishermans huts at Bembridge. Mostly holiday homes now though I think.

Will look for pictures.

My daughter put a post on an IOW Facebook page and itís been suggested that itís Wheelerís Bay, apparently used for unloading provisions, particularly coal, onto the beach. There is a picture which looks similar. Sorry, another huge picture.

the unusual building which is mid-right on the second picture is the same building in the first post ... so it's definitely the same location

The two buildings appear quite different. Apart from having completely different frontages (position of windows, doors, different balustrade), in the first one the land slopes up to less than six feet below the front of the building, in the second the stilts have the front of the building at a good twelve feet above the ground. There are two men standing next to the left hand side of the building in picture one which they couldn't do in picture two.
